Yes you can repair a treadmill walking belt. I used a specialty glue that is flexible and super strong. It is used in aeronautical applications so is very strong. Simply apply the glue to a piece of flat and thin rubber bike tire (I say thin because some bikes have knobby tires for off road and these tires are too bulky to use on a a treadmill belt)....or.... try a patch of fiberglass embedded rubber (tape or fiberglass repair mesh). Do not use a bike inner tube repair patch kit or piece of a bike inner tube as a patch because they are not strong enough. Put the special Aero-flex glue on the fiber patch and put the patch on the belt tear. Make sure the patch overlaps the tear by at least half the length of the tear on all sides. (i.e. if the tear is 2 inches then overlap on all sides by an extra inch which makes a three inch patch total length. Another Hint....put another patch of the same patch size on the opposite side of the treadmill belt in the exact mirrored spot to ensure the belt does not slip to one side...this balances the belt perfectly. Total cost...$25 dollars and 30 minutes. Fast and inexpensive.

No really. You need to replace the entire walking belt. Not to hard of a job and most replacement belts come with some instructions. We use www.treadmillpartszone.com for parts.

How do I know if I need a new roller in the back?


Your problem may be as simple as a loose walking belt. It could also be that the belt guides on the underside of the deck is too wide. Ir could also be that your rear roller collapsed (there should be noise in this case) or your rear roller screw is broken or not holding tension for some reason. Try adjusting the belt again. Consider that the belt will move to the side of least resistance so if you tighten the left side the belt will move right and vise versa. Good luck.

I will try to help you: Please use patience+carefully and basic tools+Dvom. How to Troubleshoot a Treadmill


Although most home treadmills are designed for easy operation, there are some common problems that are inevitable. The console may not display. Perhaps a loose or slipping running belt poses a safety hazard. Maybe the treadmill runs at an unpredictable speed. Those are just some of the things that can happen to bring your workout to a halt. While certain repairs will require the services of a professional who specializes in treadmill maintenance and repair, there are some basic repairs that you can do yourself.

Difficulty:

Moderate
Instructions

1.

    • 1

Clean and routinely maintain the running belt. The belt may be worn if the treadmill stops operating or trips the circuit breaker. Look for any tears in the belt. Test the belt by putting the treadmill at full incline. If it does not shut off, you may need to replace the belt. You can try lubricating it first, but the safest fix is simply to replace it.

    • 2

Tighten the running belt if it is loose. A belt can slip if there is too much friction. Be careful not to tighten the belt too much, though. You should be able to lift the belt at least 3 inches.

    • 3

Push the belt in the direction that it normally turns. Turn off the power before you start. If the belt is difficult to turn, there is high belt/deck friction. However, if the belt moves freely, that's not the problem.

    • 4

Examine the roller sleeve to see if it is centered on the running belt. If not, this could cause the belt to move to one side. Often a common problem with treadmills, you can try making adjustments yourself, but eventually you may need to replace the sleeve or roller.

    • 5

Stop the treadmill and immediately unplug the power cord from the outlet if you notice a burning smell. Overheating could be a sign that there is too much friction or a short in the wiring. Examine the belt and deck for any signs of wearing. If they check out alright, inspect the wiring. Replace any damaged parts as needed.

    • 6

Check to make sure that the power switch is on if you suddenly lose power. If this isn't the cause of the power loss, unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet and individually test the fuses, breakers and switches. Test the wall outlet first, as a fuse may have blown or a circuit breaker tripped.

    • 7

Allow the treadmill to run at a speed of 2.5 mph without anyone walking on it if you notice fluctuations in the speed. The speed should be constant. If not, there could be a problem with the motor.

    • 8

Test the motor using a fully charged lantern battery. The motor should still operate at slow speed.

The belt on my treadmill is off to one side. how


Here are two solutions one is to get the belt centered on the treadmill and the other is to tighten the belt.

There should be two bolts in the rear of the treadmill, one on each side. These bolts adjust the rear roller of the treadmill. The walking belt will always go to the side that is looser. To get the belt back on track, (if you can start the treadmill so the belt is running) tighten the bolt on the side that the belt has slipped to. Tighten the bolt a little bit at a time. If you tighten the bolt too much, then the belt will go to the other side.

To tighten the belt, start by locating the two bolts that adjust the rear roller (one on each side of the unit in the back). Run the unit at about 3 mph. Tighten the bolts a 1/4 turn at a time. Make sure that what you do to one side, you MUST do to the other side or the belt will get off center. After you tighten it 1/4 turn, check the belt to see if it is still slipping. If it is then tighten the belt 1/4 turn again. Continue until the belt does not slip, but do not tighten the bolts more than 2 full turns.

Be extremely careful when trying to trim a belt. Understand that many hazards exist when performing these steps that can result in serious injury. If you have any question whether you can perform these steps or not, please call a professional and do NOT attempt this repair.
There are two methods that can be used to trim a walking belt when it has developed a tattered edge:
1) Remove the belt from the treadmill for trimming.
a) All walking belts are cut at some point during their life, whether in manufacturing or later during service, so this will not compromise the integrity of the belt as long as you cut a straight line and do not leave a rough edge.
b) Remove the walking belt from the treadmill, lay the belt flat and even on the ground, and measure and equal distance on each end of the belt and mark the belt for cutting on each end of the belt. Cut no more than necessary to restore a smooth edge.
c) Use a piece of flat steel or other metal object that is straight and long enough and connect the two markings on the belt with the metal object.
d) Using a new razor knife, box knife, or similar instrument, cut the belt along the steel object. If the knife has a new edge, you should cut through the belt in one or two passes of the knife.
e) Check the belt for a smooth edge and reinstall the belt.

2) Cut the belt while it is mounted on the treadmill. This method should only be considered by those who are familiar with treadmills and very good with tools. This can be a dangerous process.
a) Track or center the belt off center to the opposite side of the tattered edge (i.e.- if the belt is tattered on the right side, track the belt off centered to the left side by about 1/2 to 3/4").
b) Operate the treadmill at a very slow speed. Usually 1.0 or 1.5 MPH will be sufficient.
c) Using both hands, line a new razor knife up on the tattered side of the belt. Make sure to cut no more than necessary to make a smooth edge.
d) With the belt moving and using both hands, lift the knife up and contact the belt making sure to hold the knife steady and keeping your hands and clothing as free from the moving roller as possible. You will not damage the roller to the point where it will hurt the operation of the treadmill.
e) Do not lower the knife until you see the belt separate from the tattered edge. Once this happens, turn the treadmill off, unplug the treadmill, and cut the tattered strip off the treadmill.
f) Track or center the belt and operate normally.

How do i tighten my belt ..it goes from one side to the other


First check that the treadmill is level. Then adjust levelers if possible. Most treadmills will have a bolt at the rear of the tail roller one each side to adjust belt tracking. If it is tracking to the left tighten the left , for each adjustment on one side make equal and opposite adjustment on the other side to avoid over tightening the belt. 1/4 turn at a time
